My 1965 Mk1 Cortina

Here is a photo of my Cortina when I used to race it in Tassie.
This photo was taken going into the first corner at Symmons Plains during the last v8 supercar meeting held there in 1999.

Re: My 1965 Mk1 Cortina

Yeah she does sound very addictive at 7500.
For those interested it has a 1600 motor with twin 45mm Webers, extractors, big valves, fully balanced etc with 11.5:1 compression.

Produces around 140hp on a good day

and when I was racing I would allow about 1 L for every 3km. Had to put a holley fuel pump in (with v8 spec fuel lines) to keep up the volume. hehe
